Animals Are The Victims Of Our Culture Of Cruelty
We Defend Our Positions Even When We Know We’re Wrong
Animals Are The Victims Of Our Culture Of Cruelty – Humans have an unrelenting arrogance about our place in the world – a misguided belief in our superiority and a need to dominate and destroy that is unmatched in any species. We savour our place at the top of the food chain and believe in our right to “use” animals as a commodity.
We brag about our ability to exert control over “lesser” species. We are systematically destroying the oceans – the rainforests – the atmosphere – the landscapes. We justify our vile actions by claiming tradition – habit – culture – religion – business interests and entitlement. We value profit over all else. Nothing is sacred to humans and our collective “ego” knows no bounds. We are morally and spiritually bankrupt. Our politicians are corrupt. People are lazy and disengaged. It’s all about “us”.
Animal cruelty is a sad reality – an accepted normal. It is extolled in media messages of “gangsta” cool – child abusers are forgiven – adult abusers revert to the angst of their troubled childhoods to explain their vicious actions. Animal abusers often move on and terrorize and kill children and adults. The “mainstream media” should be all over dog fighting – factory farming – poaching – trapping – horse racing – puppy mills – religious sacrifice – AgGag laws – fur farming – the greyhound industry – torture – crush videos and animal cruelty of any kind. They are NOT – they are silent – they are complicit. The victims are forgotten.
The Angora Scarf You Just Had To Have.
This Little Bunny Will Be Returned To His Cage. His Fur Will Grow Back And Be Ripped Out Again. He Will Endure This Torture 5 Or 6 Times Before His Broken Body Can Take No More. He Will Then Be Killed – He Has No Further Purpose. He Can No Longer Be Exploited! Why Are We Buying Products From The Fashion Designers Who Use Angora?
If You Are Rich You Can Have Anything!
We blast the tops off mountains – disfigure the landscapes – create islands of plastic refuse in the oceans and defile the floors of the great freshwater seas and lakes. We poach endangered creatures and turn a blind eye to appalling cruelty. We claim not to know. We pretend that all is well in our world. We are cowards of the worst kind because we agree to the suffering of the weak – hidden away behind closed doors. Out of sight – not our problem!
We have created a race that is without compassion – devoid of kindness and intent on satisfying our every need regardless of the cost. We brag about our civilized ways and worship at the feet of the very technology that has made us heartless. We scorn the weak of our own species and torture, mutilate, experiment on, kill and endanger the birds and animals who are at our mercy. Whatever cruelty we can conceive of – we will visit upon those who we dominate.
We do this because we can. We make choices every day to carry out acts of such barbaric ferocity that it numbs the minds of those who have allowed any degree of real thought into their lives. We do this to wild animals – domestic creatures – livestock and our own pets. Billions of animals never experience any kindness during their entire lives. Many are tortured over decades at the hands of humans. Others have short, traumatized lives and then are brutally slaughtered so we can use their body parts.
Animals are a product – a commodity – a profit centre – an item – a novelty – a sacrifice – a creature to be used, abused and discarded. We do not believe that animals have feelings – fears – families and that they long to play – to feel safe and to love. I don’t think a baby animal exists that does not reach out and try to connect with a person if they are given the chance. But we are too self-absorbed to notice. Too arrogant – too selfish – too ignorant to understand that their hearts beat just like ours do.

Have a look at these images and realize that if you are doing nothing in your own life to ease the pain of animals that you are complicit in the abuse and the suffering. Your inaction allows cruelty to exist. One lamb who escapes from a slaughter house captures the imagination of millions of people. We pray for her survival and a contented life in a safe sanctuary. Then we go out to dinner and order lamb kabobs.
We are disconnected – distracted and dumbed down to the level of stone age cretins. The human race is so profoundly evil and ignorant that it is a miracle that we have accomplished the incredible things that we have. Sadly we have not learned about love and compassion – kindness, tolerance and generosity. We can go to the moon but we can’t extend mercy to the weak, the injured, the lost and lonely.
Driven by the lust for power – the worship of money and the demand for the instant gratification of our every whim – we bully our way through life – intent only on fulfilling our every want. We are a toxic species – and one who is ultimately doomed.
Think about where you fit in the world. What are you are doing to make things better?
What are you willing to give up so animals do not suffer?

I Wrote This Poem For Every Veal Calf Deprived Of His Life
I know there is a beautiful place
Where kindness reigns with love and grace
Where Mother watches me sleep at night
And nothing can dim the morning light.
Instead my stall is dank and still
My legs are weak and sore
I can’t lie down or stretch or mill
My broken heart has lost its core.
Curled fists crash down on my head
I know in my soul I would rather be dead.
I struggle to turn – see the eyes of a brother
And briefly recall the sweet face of my Mother.
I dream of fields and warm sunshine
Of running free and life sublime
Instead I wait – can this be real
Yes it is – I’m becoming your veal.
And one day soon when I’m on your plate
Will you ever ponder my dreadful fate
And wonder why you stole my life
Why I paid so dearly under your knife!
